We are rehoming a Collie X this Saturday and while she’s young we’d like to rename her. The name she was given in kennels is not something I can call out across the park blush

She’s a lovely slim girl, black shiny fur and big sad eyes (hopefully not for long). We like silly names (like salami for a sausage dog grin) and old lady names. Family dog names are Bella and Olive. Any ideas??

Aw, all of ours have been rescues. Seeing them lose that sad look is all kinds of very special grin

How about Duffy?

Well I think we’ll need to see a photo or two just to make sure the names we suggest fit smile

Oh wow! Wasn’t expecting so many suggestions so quickly!

I’m liking Ethel, Flossie, Duffy and Mavis so far. I’d love to share a photo but don’t want to jinx it until she’s properly “ours” if that makes sense! I don’t think I’ll really believe it until she’s here.

That makes perfect sense, I would be the same thinking about it! Fingers crossed it all goes smoothly.
